This adorable little girl is a 21" Antique German bisque head doll, circa early 1900s. Her head was made by Simon & Halbig commissioned by the Heinrich Handwerck Co. from their own designs. Handwerck made the ball jointed composition bodies.
Simon & Halbig
Her bisque head has NO chips, NO cracks and NO repairs. Only a few wig pulls from someone who removed her wig carelessly.
She has a very sweet smiling face with molded, multi-stroked brows and delicately painted upper and lower lashes. Bright blue eyes that have been set. Shaded and outlined pink lips on her open mouth showing 4 pearly upper teeth. And matching pink nose dots. Her ears are pierced and have blue bead earrings. There are tiny flakes on right ear hole.
Nice original 15 piece ball jointed composition body stamped in red Heinrich Handwerck/ Germany. It has it's original finish with minimal restoration. Lower legs may have been repainted or discolored from old stockings. 3 fingers on left hand were rebuilt.
She is dressed in a lovely antique dotted swiss gown with lace trimmed ruffled hem and sleeves. I left it full, but you could also tie a pretty silk ribbon around the waist if you preferred.
Undies are all antique including a lace trimmed full slip, pretty pantaloons, old socks and antique black oil cloth shoes with original ties and possibly replaced buckles. They are worn, but useable condition.
Her original wig is dark brunette mohair that is quite wispy and thin in spots, so I added the vintage dotted swiss bonnet with ruffles around the brim that looks very cute on her.
All of my dolls carry a pretty antique hankie. This lovely white one has delicate blue embroidery. She wears a gold tear drop pendant with blue stone on white silk ribbon around her neck.

Very best wishes to you and your's, Bonnie
